Glenn Maxwell has had a great year as a player till now in the ongoing calendar year in cricket. The Australian cricketer had a sensational IPL where he scored more than 400 runs at an astonishing strike rate of 183.

In the ODI World Cup 2023, Maxwell played a sensational knock against Afghanistan, where he took Australia home with his brilliant knock with the bat. He scored an unbeaten 201, which was the fastest 200 by a batter in the tournament. Against the Netherlands, Maxwell scored the fastest hundred by a batter in the ODI World Cup. He capped off the Indian season with a 48-ball hundred in the third T20I.

Speaking about his experience of playing in the IPL, Maxwell said that it would be his last tournament in cricket. The Australian batter said that the tournament has helped him a lot in his career. Maxwell added that playing alongside greats like Virat Kohli and Ab de Villers is a lifetime memory. "The IPL will probably be the last tournament I ever play, as I will play the IPL until I can't walk anymore," said Maxwell.

'Hopefully, a lot of our Australian players can get over to the IPL' - Glenn Maxwell

"I was talking about how good the IPL has been to me throughout my career; the people I've met, the coaches I have played under, the international players that you get to rub shoulders with, how beneficial to my whole career that tournament has been," added Maxwell. The Australian batter will take part in the 13th edition of the BBL with Melbourne Stars. 

"You're rubbing shoulders with AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli for two months, talking to them while watching other games. It's just the greatest learning experience that any player could ask for. Hopefully, a lot of our Australian players can get over to the IPL and get to work in slightly similar conditions to the West Indies, where it is a little bit drier, it will spin," concluded Maxwell.
